Since turning 30 last year, my attention has been firmly turned towards the ‘anti-ageing’ section of the skincare aisles. If a product beats fine lines, I’m in, and as I’ve discovered, one of the most powerful ingredients in the fight against looking old! One thing to note though, retinol can be super potent, so if you’ve got sensitive skin, make sure you’re not using anything too powerful, as it can cause dryness and flaking – and no-one wants that!
Once or twice per week, after cleansing, I’ve been patting a few drops of the Pixi Overnight Retinol Oil onto dry skin, and following it with richer cream on areas which tend to dry out. It’s a lovely, lightweight oil, which sinks quickly into skin, leaving it feeling soft and nourished. Even during warmer nights, it never feels too heavy on the skin, instead it just feels like a treat. In the morning, skin looks lovely and dewy, and after using it regularly, I’ve really noticed a positive change in the texture of my skin – it’s so much smoother – perfect for easing up on the makeup for summer!
